This was Ishar’s first line almost since the beginning.  You can see at this point her design was nearly final – her armor buckles were still going through revision, but everything else was essentially done.  I hadn’t actually gone through and worked out how her wings folded yet, so you can see that for some reason she’s got them sticking up behind her, despite her arms being bent.

The original idea was to have her first line be all one panel, but I split it up in the actual page to try to give the line more of that halting sort of reluctance that I had been imagining.
